Spider webs in the face are as synonymous with trail running as peanut butter is to jelly. While no one loves catching a hidden spider web in the face, it is a right of passage in the trail community. If you are forced to pull the sticky pieces of web off of you, you’ll likely spend the next 15 minutes imagining fake spiders in your hair. When this happens, one thing is certain: it’s trail racing season!
In 2022, the North Carolina Trail Mega Medal Series will be completed with four finisher medals that connect to form one giant spider web medal. Each medal also features a movable spider on it!
Whether you are a beginner or veteran trail runner, let’s have fun, hit the trails, and earn that spider web!
